dashing.sujay already said,2nd one is better. And if gaming is primary then better buy a desktop as suggested by sainataranjan. You can do photoshop too.

To avoid any confusion see following links

New! Inspiron 15R Special Edition Laptop Details | Dell India - Costing Rs.58,990

OR

Inspiron 17R Special Edition Laptop Details | Dell India - Costing Rs.63,999

Now tell which one's better.

2nd option is much better but weighs 3.4kg, so you face difficulty in mobility.

Better to go with samsung series 5 550p laptop powered by 3rd gen core-i7, 8GB RAM, GT 650M 2GB, JBL Speakers with sub-woofer and blu-ray drive. For just 56.5k with 2 years free warranty.

Ranking doesn't define gaming performance, the graphic performance of GT 650M is almost 20-25% better than HD 7730M.
RAM can be extended easily by putting extra, it is as easy as putting USB no issues.. you need to buy an extra exact same type of RAM that is 4 GB DDR3 1600Mhz, it is better, wiser and cheaper option.

Both are good, but I think 1st one will also fulfill your requirements, better go with it as it has got a better processor also but check how much difference is there in the price of both and which one fits in your budget.
And one thing more, please avoid 17" laptops.

Thanks!! I had thought of buying the 1st one only. But the responses here confused me. The price difference is around 3-4k only!! :p

Dude I too was at the same crossroads.. went with 650mgt as (from what I have heard) GAMING == GPU (If the game is well optimized for pc). Also Nvidia will optimize games for its gpus, so better get an Nvidia .

So I went ahead and ordered the 17R SE :cool:

I've already ordered the 15r SE with i7. The RAM and processor were not to my liking in the 2nd option. Also 17inch laptops aren't easy to carry and there aren't many bags available for it too.
Btw Nvidia doesnt make any games. They make gpu for games. Isn't it so??
